  • wrist
  • Cumulative Trauma Disorders such as Tendonitus, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Raynaud's Syndrome are caused by the specialization of motion employed when using a screw driver, the shock to the hand and wrist when a hammer strikes a nail, or the vibration of a power saw. (google.com)
  • Directive
  • In order to support transposition of the directive at national level, a guide intended for the Member States has been produced (manuals in German on the subject of hand-arm vibration (PDF, 1.5 MB) and whole-body vibration (PDF, 2.6 MB) are available for download in PDF format). (dguv.de)
  • control
  • The aims of the survey were used to describe patterns of exposure to vibration in conjunction with patters of vibration control provisions with respect to industry, occupation and other relevant demographic and employment variables. (safeworkaustralia.gov.au)
  • The aim of the group is to provide a forum for members to exchange information and discuss developments within this general field of interest including noise and vibration control, prediction methods and the effect on receptors (not just people). (ioa.org.uk)
  • 4 While WBV-induced longitudinal stretching of A β Ruffini bulbous corpuscles may cause additional "gate control" pain relief, it is more likely that the Ia and II afferents on the muscle spindles themselves centrally mediate pain relief with larger amplitude vibration.

  • employers
  • Employers must also comply with the General Duty Clause of the OSHAct, which requires employers to keep their workplace free of serious recognized hazards. (osap.org)
  • Employers have the responsibility to provide a safe workplace. (osap.org)
  • Employers MUST provide their employees with a workplace that does not have serious hazards and follow all OSHA safety and health standards. (osap.org)
  • biomechanical
  • It is also known as vibration therapy , vibrotherapy , biomechanical stimulation ( BMS ), mechanostimulation and biomechanical oscillation ( BMO ). (wikipedia.org)
  • stimulation
  • Vibration, or the transmission of oscillatory mechanical stimulation, may be accomplished with auditory or ultrasonic waves, pulsed electromagnetic fields, electrical stimulation, shockwaves, or mechanical devices with motor-driven shaking platforms or eccentric flywheels.

  • seats
  • It is also an accredited body for the vibration testing of vehicle seats (PDF, 107 KB) in the commercial sector. (dguv.de)
  • harm
  • Receive information and training about hazards, methods to prevent harm, and the OSHA standards that apply to their workplace. (osap.org)
  • provide
  • The TRLV technical rules on vibration of March 2015 pursuant to the LärmVibrationsArbSchV provide information on the latter's implementation. (dguv.de)
  • conditions
  • Injured patients can be exposed to shocks and vibrations during transport which can worsen patient conditions due to involuntary motions of the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is important to note that these vibration parameters are strongly dependent upon the local workplace conditions. (dguv.de)
